Commodities Brokerage with $1M in Profit For Sale

Madison, Nebraska, United States

$ 4,200,000

(Furniture / Fixtures included)

Revenue: $ 1,807,855

Cash Flow: $ 1,062,444

Business Description

This futures trading company earns a 58% profit margin. Located in Eastern Nebraska with 700 active clients across 30 states, 80% of contracts are grain or livestock based. Outside of these, futures trading comes from other traditional markets like currency, oil, precious metals and more. In business for over 25 years, the seller is looking to retire and will be leaving behind an additional book of 1,200 inactive clients for a new owner to take on and grow the company.

A buyer looking to broker would need to obtain a Series 3 license administered by FINRA. The test is a straightforward 2 1/2-hour, multiple choice exam to secure a license. This can be achieved during the Due Diligence time period after an offer to purchase the business has been made, and can be taken in testing centers across Nebraska. A buyer not looking to broker would need to hire additional brokers to assist the 2 employed brokers currently working.

This is an excellent chance for a sales professional to break into a lucrative field with obtainable licensing, or for a larger commodities firm to acquire a second location. Sales are stead year-over-year, and an ambitious broker could drive sells well over the $2M mark.
